Tillandsia Baileyi is a variety of air plant native to Texas and northern Mexico, where it grows and thrives on large stones and on trees or shrubs at latitudes ranging from 2000 to 2500 metres above sea level.
On its long, curved, tentacle-shaped leaves, it has a layer of trichomes which are responsible for retaining the humidity of the environment.
These trichomes are white in colour and are very diffuse on the surface of the foliage and stem.
They can reach a height of 20 to 40 cm, with a bulb from which a dense and tortuous foliage appears.
The flower stalk produces large pink flowers.
It requires a fairly bright and sunny position, in a low humidity and well-ventilated environment.
As for watering, once a week in warm months and once every two weeks in colder months is recommended.
Support/bark not included.
